A Couple of Things, Including A Giveaway.

1. I haven't been reading lately. And by that I mean at all. It's very strange. I tried to read one book (that will remain nameless, ((but FYI it wasn't The Ylem), gave up on it, and now I'm reading Afterlife by Claudia Gray. I know I'm really going to like it, because I seem to have some kind of soft spot for this series. But I just don't want to read right now, so I'm not going to force it. Hopefully this weird-ness will go away soon. (Note: I think I'm blaming Jellicoe Road for this, because this is probably a really bad Good Book Hangover.)

2. I was over at a friend's from Monday til today, so I apologize for the blogging break. It was an unexpected sleepover. *cue Apologize*  To be honest though, my blogging probably will be slowing down until I start reading more.

3. I'll draw the winners of my Summer Contest very soon. Promise.

4. Do you guys call it a "contest" or a "giveaway"? I seem to alternate between the two... But, speaking of which, CONTEST/GIVEAWAY ALERT!

One winner will win an e-book of The Ylem by Tatiana Vila.

An ancient book, a seventeen-year-old girl and an exotic boy from a supernatural world hold the key to freedom for a long-oppressed race, but that freedom could come at the cost of the human world.

Seventeen-year-old Kalista is suffering from a broken heart, so when her playwright father proposes they move their lives from New York to New Mexico because he is in need of inspiration Kalista is 100% on-board with him. New Mexico proves to be the perfect balm for her wounds and she is just starting to feel some of her old spunk when Tristan Winfield comes into her life and pulls all of her barriers down. Kalista is captivated by Tristan's unusual silver eyes and feels an inexplicable connection to him, which begins to manifest itself in her dreams with bizarre images of a waterfall and an orb. 

While searching for an explanation for her troubling dreams, Kalista discovers an ancient book which holds the secrets of a supernatural race of creatures. But when Killings hit town, she realizes her finding has come at a high price. She's in the middle of a power struggle now, and a secret seems to be wrapped within the pages of that book. A secret she's part of...
Sounds cool, right? Well one winner will receive a Smashwords coupon, so go see if it's compatible with your ereader. The contest will run until the night of June 13. As it's an ebook, it is international. You can get one extra entry if you follow Tatiana's blog. Fill out THIS FORM to enter.

Good luck! And special thanks to the lovely Ms. Vila herself for providing the contest/giveaway/whatever you call it.
